The "wasted" first day of the convention

So the consensus seems to be that the Dems should have hit McCain harder last night. I have no idea, frankly. I'd like to see some hard reporting and research on why and how conventions work for the broader voting body. Anything else is conjecture. I don't know what to make of Mark Warner not attacking McCain, except that I agree that that's never been his forte. I did think Michelle killed. But she doesn't have to convince me, so I don't know what that means either. I don't know whether the need to attack was more important than the moment with the kids. Guess I'm not helping much here, huh guys?
